About YUM! Brands, Inc.

As the world’s largest quick service restaurant company, Yum! Brands consists of approximately 40,000 restaurants in some 130 countries around the world. Yum! is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky and its family of brands includes Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell.

Products & Services

Through developing, operating, owning, franchising, and licensing a system of restaurants, Yum! has become a leader in chicken, pizza, and Mexican fast food. KFC is a Kentucky-based brand that offers a wide selection of chicken, spanning fried chicken, sandwiches, and other sides. Pizza Hut is the largest pizza restaurant chain and offers all types of pizzas, from thin crusted pizzas to hand-tossed pizzas. Taco Bell is a California-based chain with a menu that serves affordable tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and other Mexican-themed speciality foods. Yum! also delivers its brands internationally to China, India, and other countries.


Yum! was part of a spin-off from PepsiCo, which used to own a fast food division; the company has a lifetime contract with form parent PepsiCo. In 1997 Tricon Global Restaurants was created and after the 2002 acquisition of Yorkshire Global Restaurants, the company changed its name to its current banner. Although A&W Restaurants and Long John Silver’s were part of Yorkshire Global, the two brands went to join the Pepsi product, due to Yum!’s contract with Pepsi. Yum! began focusing on its core brands KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell in 2011. It decided to work on its lack of global presence and began to expand its restaurants in foreign countries. The company recently purchased China’s Little Sheep hot pot chain and has continued to open restaurants around the world.

Job Opportunities

Today Yum! is a public company traded on the NYSE. It is parent to not only its core brands, but also WingStreet, Yum! Restaurants International, Yum! Restaurants China, and Yum! Restaurants India. Although a restaurant company, Yum! offers jobs in a myriad of fields such as finance, marketing, IT, food innovation, and more.
